How much nicotine is in Whitetail Smokeless Leaf Chew substitute compared to traditional tobacco chew?

When we developed Whitetail we wanted to replicate the traditional chewing tobacco experience as closely as possible. Our research quickly found that the nicotine levels for traditional products was all over the board. So we decided to split the difference and place ourselves as close to the middle as possible. We fall between Kodiak and Grizzly (see the chart below):

Product Nicotine mg per 34 grams
Copenhagen 431.8
Kayak long cut wintergreen 404.6
Skoal Dry 404.6
Copenhagen Pouches 380.8
Kodiak wintergreen 363.8
Whitetail long cut 360.0
Grizzly long cut wintergreen 350.2
Red Man 292.4
Cooper long cut wintergreen 272.0
Red Man Golden 261.8
Beech Nut 241.4
Levi Garrett 180.2

NOTE: always consult a physician before you begin using any nicotine product.

What is Nicocleene™?

Nicocleene™ is a nontoxic, non-addictive alternative to traditional nicotine. Nicocleene™ is an all-natural proprietary blend of Nicotinamide (Vitamin B3) and Alpha GPC specially formulated to deliver the same satisfaction as traditional tobacco products.

Why Nicotinamide? Nicotine and Nicotinamide both affect the CCR2 receptor in the brain. Competition between Nicotinamide and Nicotine results in the depletion of Nicotinamide Adenosine Dinucleotide molecules that the cell needs to produce energy. Nicotinamide is a form of Vitamin B3 found in food and used as a dietary supplement and medications.

Why Alpha GPC? Nicotine works by activating nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in the brain. Nicotinic receptors are a subgroup of acetylcholine receptors, that are also activated by nicotine. Alpha-GPC is a precursor to acetylcholine which activates those same nicotinic receptors.

The FDA lists the ingredients in Nicocleene™ as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe).

Nicocleene is not addictive, therefore non habit forming.

Nicocleene™ does not contain any chemicals such as Cotinine or nicotine and will not register on any tobacco or nicotine drug screening.

Nicocleene™ is not covered in the Tobacco Control Act. Nicotinamide and Alpha GPC are non toxic.

The FDA lists the ingredients in Nicocleene™ as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe).

Does Whitetail Smokeless Leaf Chew contain caffeine?

No, we do not add caffeine to our products and none of our base ingredients contain caffeine naturally.

Does Whitetail Smokeless Leaf Chew taste like traditional chewing tobacco?

We set out to create a product that was better than chewing tobacco in every way, including taste. We feel we have the strongest, cleanest, best tasting, longest lasting leaf chew on the market. So to answer your question; no it does not taste exactly like tobacco chew, it tastes better.

Can Whitetail Smokeless Leaf Chew be swallowed?

We use organic mint leaves and flavorings that are Food Grade and GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe for consumption) in all of our products. Even though our Zero strength does not contain nicotine it is still not intended to be ingested. Our full, medium and low strength leaf chews contain nicotine which is considered a stimulant and a toxin therefore it is also not intended to be swallowed.

Is Whitetail Smokeless Leaf Chew a safe alternative to chewing tobacco?

The only chemical we use that is extracted from tobacco is nicotine. Raw nicotine can be toxic at high levels. Whitetail Smokeless Leaf Chew does not contain any tobacco leaf or any of the other carcinogenic (cancer causing) chemicals found in traditional chewing tobacco. Whitetail Smokeless Leaf Chew has not been FDA certified as an alternative or substitute for chewing tobacco.

Why do you add Xylitol as an ingredient?

During testing and development we found we needed a little added sweetness but we did not want to add sugar or molasses or honey, like other brands do, because we did not want to create a product that promoted tooth decay. Xylitol is a natural sweetener derived from the fibrous parts of plants. It does not break down like sugar and can help keep a neutral pH level in the mouth. Xylitol also prevents bacteria from sticking to the teeth. This is how it protects the teeth from tooth decay.
